My Rating: A KEEPER!
My Review: Holy Moly! What can I say except...I LOVED this book! The cover was the first thing that caught my eye, can you blame me?! *winks* It's simply gorgeous and what lies inside is even more enchanting..
From the very first page I was intrigued, and the more I read the more I became captivated by Cesya's story. Her writing style is fun and awe-inspiring, she brings her characters to life in your mind with each word. Your taken on a thrilling journey, with danger around every corner, many twists and turns you'll be on the edge of your seat. Powerful faerie magic. Tingling, head of heels, passionate, love. An adventure I'll be taking over and over again.
Callie is such an awesome main character, I loved her attitude, she cracked me up alot with her snippy remarks and come backs. The fights she'd have with herself was a hoot, who doesn't do that?! lol.
Her sister Lola is simply adorable she has more of a outgoing, snarky attitude and she'll have you in fits of giggles as well. Together they are a force to be reckoned with and so much fun to read about.
Now onto our fellow Aussie Oli, wow! It was such a refreshing change to read about an Aussie character. I simply LOVED his Aussie slang! It gave him a special individual quality, you'll just fall for him. He's most definitely a true blue, mate! *winks*
I have to share with you a little quote from Callie that had me spitting out my drink in giggles, I've never heard this expression before...
"I became so entranced my eyes practically licked him, raked over him, devoured him. You get the point. Hello, Tall, Dark, and Sexy!"
"My eyes practically licked him." *giggles* I seriously love it!
Cesya has done an amazing job for her debut novel, if you haven't read it yet I'd recommend giving it a go, or even popping it onto your 'to be read' pile.
Believe me, the ending will have you coming back for more. I know I'm hanging out for book 2 "Battle Scars"
